READER REPORT: Hit-run driver sought

From Deniece:

I would like to report an incident that occurred today about 2:30 pm. My daughter was crossing the street, heading north on Lanham PL SW & Sylvan Way, when a Caucasian woman in a light blue 4-door car, heading west, hit her with her car. She didn’t hit her hard, but it was enough to knock her down. Apparently, this woman stopped in the middle of the intersection because traffic was backed up. The light changed red and she proceeded through the intersection. My daughter said something to her as she began crossing the street and the woman kept going and hit her. Did anyone see this? If so, I would appreciate any help trying to find this woman. The medics checked my daughter out and she is ok. I will be taking her into the doctor tomorrow morning. Police incident #21-94295.

    So sorry this happened to your daughter. I’ve many times threaded the needle between a car illegally stopped in the intersection and the crosswalk; often the driver is quite angry you are blocking their way. An assault charge, jail time, & community service repainting crosswalks might be a refreshing diversion for our community’s impatient yet overly coddled drivers.

Sorry, comment time is over.
